L-511 High-Precision Linear Stage

High Travel Accuracy

PI L-511
Travel ranges to 155 mm (6")
Optional linear encoder for direct position measurement
Efficient ActiveDrive DC servo motor, Stepper Motor or DC Gear Motor
Direction-sensing reference point switch

Reference-class linear stage

Recirculating ball bearings for high travel accuracy and load capacity. Precision ball screw with 2 mm pitch. Stress-relieved aluminum base for highest stability. Travel range of the variants: L-511.2: 52 mm (2"), L-511.4: 102 mm (4"), L-511.6: 155 mm (6").

Drive types

  • .xxAD variant: ActiveDrive DC motor for high velocity: Control via pulse-width-modulated (PWM) signals, the operating voltage is attained via an amplifier integrated in the motor housing.
  • .xxDG variant: DC servo motor with gearhead for high torques and resolution at low motor power
  • .xxSD variant: 2-phase stepper motor for low velocity and high resolution

Noncontact limit switches. Noncontact optical reference point switch with direction sensing in the middle of the travel range.

Position measurement

Integrated rotary encoder on the motor shaft (variants with DC gear motor)

Integrated linear encoder, centrally installed. Direct position measurement of the motion platform without influence on the positioning precision by mechanical play or hysteresis in the drivetrain

Minimum incremental motion and slow motion

In conjunction with the SMC Hydra controller, versions with stepper motor and integrated linear encoder (L-511.xASD00) achieve repeatable minimum incremental motion in the range of the sensor resolution. The same configuration attains constant low velocities of a few sensor increments per second.

Fields of application

Precision positioning in industry and research, high duty cycles.
